Graduations

Unlike traditional schools, graduation ceremonies at Alpine focus on a single student. Their accomplishment is celebrated with their family and many others closest to them during their journey. And every graduation ceremony ends with a very special Alpine tradition. View our video gallery to watch a selection of graduations, and hear first-hand the transformation our students have had.
